These foods are recommended for weight loss and resolution of the body of toxins. Ginger helps in keeping the glycemic control, and also facilitates spasms and helps against nausea. mint helps with weight loss because it stimulates the burning of fat, helps eliminate toxins from the body, and also relieves pain in the abdomen. Citrus Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which acts favorably on the liver – the main purifier of the body. The same can be said for lime.
Regular consumption of cucumber will solve kidney stones.
What you’ll need:
- 2 liters of water
- 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
- 12 small peppermint leaves
Cut the cucumber not too thick, but not too thin. It’s up to you if you wish to shave off the skin. Personally, I shave off the peel hoping to release more citrulline, which helps eliminate ammonia (highly toxic substance) from the liver. The lemon can be cut the same way as the cucumber, but keeping the peel on the lemon turns out to be more beneficial. Both the lemon and mint help with digestion, and also relaxes the stomach muscles. As for the ginger, it’s better to shave off the skin as best as you can. The ginger helps with inflammation in the stomach line. The lemon grass provides an extra coat of anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-cancer properties.
Allow all of these ingredients to infuse in a pitcher of water over night. Wake up, take a sip and Enjoy!
After the second day it’s usually preferred to make a fresh batch. At that point you have already consumed more than half of the nutrients from each ingredient. Not to mention the mint leaves will start to lose their color. Over-all, it’s a refreshing, healthy and easy to make super drink.
